'Jeopardy!' Champ Gives Epic Wrong Response

This isn't the greatest wrong answer we've ever seen. Back in September, Elizabeth Williams was stumped by this clue: "In 1937 his sister said he had 'hats of every description' which he would use as a 'foundation of his next boo.k'"

The other contestants failed to come up with a response, but rather than leave her board blank, Williams pulled out this old trick: "Who is someone who has never been in my kitchen."

"Cheers" fans recognized the line from a season eight episode where Cliff Clavin appears on "Jeopardy!" and gives the same equally wrong response. Unlike Cliff, Williams didn't wager it all and still managed to win the day.
